will visit israel with a message about the enduring relationship between the united states and israel, about the unshakeable commitment the united states has to israel's security. measured not only in the amount of assistance but in the strong bonds that our people share. >> president obama will meet with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu where he will reiterate the united states is preventing iran from getting a nuclear bomb. he will discuss means of maintaining civil war. he will fly to the west bank where he will have separate talks with palestinian president mahmoud abbas. >>> the ambassador going on the record to discuss what he thinks is the reason behind the president's trip. >> i think it allows president obama to check the box that he finally made it to israel. it's significant it comes after the american election. he goes to israel on his terms while the visit will be heavy with symbolism and opportunities this is a rare trip in which the substance of the visit will be divorced from the symbolism. i don't think there will be any fence mending on this trip. president obama c
and also the historical basis on which the state of israel does exist. a very important statement from president obama, once again, setting the tone for what he hopes and what his intention is, to create a warmer relationship, warmer understanding with the israeli leader and the new government that has been sworn in only a few days ago. obamast netanyahu and made a point of saying we have a vision of the middle east which has freedom, prosperity, and piece. we seek peace with our palestinian neighbors. but actually the whole prospect of further negotiations between israel and the palestinians, that is very much being doubted, very low expectations on that front. >> certainly, it has been made very clear that president obama is not bringing any new initiatives, not bringing any new demands or any ideas to re- spark what has been a completely dormant peace process for much of obama's first term. but one must make the point here that while this is about repairing the relationship, the issue of the peace process will be discussed but not in as great a detail, certainly on a former general
, president obama called the use of chemical weapons in syria a red line. that the united states would have to act in some say militarily if syria starts moving around those chemical weapons. so our question, is it time for the united states to intervene in syria? jason? >> i don't know if we can afford to intervene at this point seeing how the sequester is going to be limiting our military capacity in the next couple of weeks and next couple of months. no. i think it was nice rhetoric by barack obama, but we've much more important things to be looking at. we have to make sure iran doesn't get a nuclear weapon, we have to make sure the two-state solution doesn't disappear in israel. whether or not the syrian government in the beginning of their civil war was using chemical weapons doesn't need to be a priority right now. >> for once i agree with the president, laying the marker down. the united states of america has never sat on the sidelines when people have created this type of chaos against their own people so i think certainly senator mccain and senator graham along with the president h

states and president obama. so we're going to be watching this. we know a tree was planted at president shimon peres' home, which our president hoped would blossom and grow and be a long standing trip to a warm relationship between the two. this is something that will have a news conference at 2:05 p.m. these two gentlemen, these leaders will go into some closed bilateral talks, i believe dinner will be served. about that hour over there in israel. and we will have a news conference after which we will cover that live at 2:05 p.m. eastern time. >>> we do have some breaking news out of colorado that we're tracking for you. we're giving you right now a bird's eye view over that city. that's where a massive man hunt is underway for a man suspected of shooting and killing of the state department of corrections. all the houses close to the home of this man, prison chief tom clements, he was gunned down when he answered his front door last night. now, all this is unfolding the very same day that the state's governor is due to sign a new set of gun control laws. just moments ago, the governor
states, thank you to president obama. even at one time called him barack. this comes after a few months ago prime minister netanyahu made it very clear he prefered governor romney back in the 2012 election. however, prime minister netanyahu made it clear though that israel, quote, remained in the present of their right to defend themselves which is clearly talking about an attack on iran which is not something that president obama wanted to see. president obama who at times has been seen a little bit soft on iran for his part tried to make it seem that the united states would always have israel's back. >> the united states of america stands with the state of israel because it is in our fundamental national security interests to stand with israel. it makes us both stronger. it makes us both more prosperous, and it make the world a better place. >> reporter: president obama has an uphill battle on this charm offensive going forward. martha, a recent poll done here in israel only 10% of israelis had a favorable or likeness toward president obama. martha: hmmm. that is a pretty rough number
of secretary of state kerry will help us turn a page in our relations with the palestinians. >> michael: tom president obama will be going to palestine to meet with palestinian president mahmoud abbas. here is more on at that same press conference. >> obama: i'm pleased to announce that we'll take steps to ensure there is no interruption in funding for iron dome. as as a result of decisions that i made last year israel will receive approximately $250 million this fiscal year and we will continue to work with congress on future funding of iron dome. >> michael: the president talking about iron dome there you know, lindsey graham center from south carolina talked yesterday about bad attack in syriac whether it's a chemical attack, and here is what lindsey graham had to say in the choice to send troops to secure the weapons site versus allowing chemical weapons to get in the hands of the some of the most violent people in the world i vote to cut this off before it becomes a problem. lindsey graham from here weighing in on what the president is discussing over there, trying to get them to talk a
anger at the united states. >> the americans did not do anything when they came to iraq. they granted freedom to iraq? what freedom are they talking about? >> warner: in washington, president obama issued a statement marking the anniversary saying he joined in paying tribute to all who served and sacrificed in one of our tion's longest wars. earlier i spoke to jane arraf a reporter earlier, i spoke to jane arraf, a reporter for al-jazeera english and the christian science monitor, about today's violence in baghdad and life in post-war iraq. welcome jane. what is known about who or what's behind today's car bombings and suicide attacks? >> well, the finger, judy, is always pointed at al qaeda and al qaeda-linked groups. because they view the attacks to have the fingerprints of that organization. it was extremely coordinated attack as you saw, more than 20 bombs, many car bombs and then for good measure they threw in some suicide bombers as well as sticky bombs on the bottoms of buses. most shi'a target and security targets. that sits in to what al qaeda is doing, try to destabilize the
of february. and what happened is obama announced that he is going to israel and the united states--s believes-- made it clear to abu mazen that if reconciliation talks were to continue there would be no funding. >> warner: the u.s., israel and the e.u. consider hamas-- whose charter threatens the obliteration of israel-- to be a terrorist organization. in 2011, then secretary of state hilla clintonas asd if a just-announce pred limb their agreement between hamas and fatah would prompt the u.s. to reconsider aid for the palestinian authority. secretary clinton said "we've made it very clear that we cannot support any government that consists of hamas unless and until hamas adopts principles that have been well known to everyone for a number of years." the principles include recognizing the state of israel. shipley tellhami says the u.s. should be prepared to drop that insistence when it comes to political parties if it hopes to broker a peace deal. >> i think we should insist that any palestinian government-- whether it's hamas or whoever it is-- meet certain conditions including being against
president obama. >> and he is also accompanied by his secretary of state john kerry, as well. we would like to bring in sara sidner, live in jerusalem right now. can you talk a little bit more about the president's mission? >> we should mention that once he gets off the plane one of the first things he's going to see is the iron dome missile defense system, something that the united states helped fund, the united states giving israel somewhere around $3 billion per year for its security. they are actually bringing one of the iron dome batteries to the airport so that he can see it for time purposes. this is the battery that has -- >> sara i don't know if you can see this -- sara -- if i could interrupt you for a minute we are looking at president obama, as he is coming off air force one there, to meet prime minister benjamin netanyahu. sorry to interrupt you. i don't think you have the pictures. i don't think you're watching them, as well. a big smile, as he is there to greet benjamin netanyahu, or benjamin netanyahu is there to greet president obama. >> how are you? good to see you. >> sar
't continue with the state of perpetual war. host: let's talk about the budget issues. president obama on the hill last democrats g to house from bloomberg's reporting he all of you to agree to entitlement changes to medicare saying it iscurity better to make the changes when office rather n than a republican. what was your reaction? guest: first, no benefit cuts. the bottom line for myself. no cuts in social security, medicare.nd they are benefits that one works for all of their lives or either disabled or can't work for whatever reason. so, we owe this to the american people. when you talk about reform and medicare and medicaid, social medicare for example, we could allow for more for prescription drugs. that would achieve cost savings. achieve many ways to savings without cutting benefits. the formulas that would cut i do not support. host: what about raising 65igibility for medicare from -- guest: no, i do not support that. when you look at many people in sectors and industrial sectors, coal mining for life e, when you look at spans of african-americans and is a shame lor it but
more; try to elicit some type of promise from president obama here that the united states will keep iran from getting a nuclear bomb. as you watch the smiles and handshakes on the red carpet and the pomp and circumstance the israelis rolled out for this visit, it doesn't show the relationship between these two men which is going to happen largely behind closed doors. the president then heads to the west bank to try and work on the israeli-palestinian peace process which is all but dead here in the middle east. you can expect the president at least privately to talk to president national yahoo and try to get some -- president netanyahu and try to get some movement on that. in the west bank, the president will probably not get the kind of reception you're seeing there. already in the west bank there are posters of the president up that have been graffitid over. a big part of this visit is the charm offensive you're seeing now, the smiles, pomp, circumstance; also president obama visiting what's called the iron dome, that is a u.s.-funded missile defense system that was very successful
